The Vatican Treasury cost an extra 5 euros. I enjoyed seeing the reliquaries. There is pieces of the cross, St. Peter's finger, the skull of Apostle Luke and many more treasures for viewing. It is worth the extra 5 euros.

This again is part of your tour of the Vatican City the statues, made out of mostly beautiful Marble all hand carved are a wonder and delight to see. The whole experience is well worth a visit even if you are not of the Catholic Faith. Anyone can visit this wondrous place.

The picture they are showing is not of the Vatican Treasury. This statue is in the Vatican Museum. The Treasury is separate and requires a minimal admission. Lots of great things to see in the Treasury. We enjoyed touring it even though we had to wait to get in because there was a mass being celebrated.

The previous popes of the Vatican were powerful and came from families with influence. This wonderful treasure trove of art and sculptures were amassed through the centuries. Thanks to their status and wealth, we are able to view these precious objects today. Well worth the guided tour.

We visited Vatican in October-November 2016. The queues was long but now you can bypass the lines just by booking your visit on the Vatican website. The price is the same as for those that's standing in lines and they charge you 16 Euro if you are in a group. The group can be just two people. If the time... More

Walking around is like reading the encyclopedia of art. It is amazing how many masterpieces you can see here. One knows the copies, but here you see all the originals. The highlight for me is Laakoon and his sons.
